Kanye West Dresses Up Like An Old Man And Raps About Viagra

Perfect. It’s like they always say, rap what you know.

Congratulations, of course, to Mr. West for finally arriving at his popstar indulgent costume moment. It is a rite of passage for anyone climbing the fame ladder. It took 50 Cent six years to invent Pimpin’ Curly. The Beastie Boys were successful for eight years before making the “Sabotage” video. In just four and a half years, West has transformed himself from a regular human being with a narcissistic hunger for international recognition to fill the void of his standard-issue “life” into a famous human being whose narcissistic hunger is fulfilled enough that he can “have fun” with it (in the pursuit of even more recognition and all-consumingly-desirable attention). Brava.
